This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on Hbrary shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 
We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain fivm automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attributionTht GoogXt "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liabili^ can be quite severe.

tively necessary to make advances out of Imperial funda for 
provisiouing ur israing stores or munitions of war to colonial 
troops, or for enabling the Colonial Government to raise local 
levies, the officer commanding must underatanil that nothing but 
the clearest proof that the colonial exchequer is unable to misa th«

O^muiandini; and inNi>ecting officn^rs nhould Ix^ar in mind that no 
rach dencription can be of any value unleiM it brings to notice an 
officer's weak |>i>ints an well art his strong ones. As it is not to be 
eipe^ed that all |¥>ints in an officer's character are equally strrmg, 
the fact that the weak ones have been brought to notice need not 
iieceAcirily l>e conj«iden*<l to conittitute an aiivenBe re|K)rt, and nee<l 
not, on thin acc«)unt alone, Im.* c»mniunicated to him. Hut a i*om- 
niaiiding or inM|M>cting officer may use his discretion in bringing to 
the notice <»f an officer any weak iK»iuts which have been recorded 
amiinst him which in their opinion might oe impioved by increased 
energy or attention.

any fault which affects an otticer s character as an ofticer and a 
ipentleman, or his titness for his present jxisition, or for promotion 
to a higher one, the particulars ot the adverse report are to be read 
wwhatim to him by the officer making it, in tne presence, when 
possible, of the inM|»ecting offi^nrr and s<HX>nd in command of the 
corp4. If the officer unfavourably rep(»rted on is not present at 
the tim«» of the iiis|ie<-tioii, the alw^'e jxarticularH are to be com-

. The commanding officer will exercise a careful supervision 
orer tlie consumption of gas and water, according to the instructions ^ Jj^Jr! 
contained in the liegulations for Supply, Transport and Ilarrack 
Senrii'es. He will cause frequent inspections to be made at uncertain 
times, so that waste may be at once detected and reported to the 
officer in charge of Imrracks, and steps taken to remedy it The oocn- 
panta of separate rooms will be cautioned to lower the gas in theu* 
quarters when quitting in the evening. During frosts the com- 
manding officer will cause precautions to be taken to prevent the 
Ireesing of the water in the pipes, either by drawing it otf from the 
waier-doset pans and pipes where this can be done, or by allowing 
a minute stream of water to issue from taps of exposed pipes. Straw 
should be demanded for the purjKMe of covering tne exposed 

400. The economical use of gas and water should engage the Eeoaom 
attention of general officers commanding, and the iuMtructions *B)oia«S. 
r »ntaine«l in A. F.~F 728 will be carefully adhered to. In 

any injiiance in which it appears, either from the quarterly returns 
rendered under paragraph 20H7, or otherwise, that tnerehas been an 
excessive oonsumpti<in, they will direct the commanding Royal 
Engineer U* report to them whether the excess can be traced to any 
delect in any of the works under the charge of the Royal Engineers. 
Any works or repairs required will be dealt with in the ordinary 
manner. The rate of consumption of water, when paid for by 
meter, will be kept as low as possible. Twenty gallons a day 
for each officer, man, woman, and home, and 10 gallons a day 
for each child, is a liberal supply for all purposes, but this is a 
maximum rate, and the quantity used will be kept as much below 
this as fMisMible. Any higher rate of consumption will be closely 
inquired into. General officers commanding will re(¥»rt annuallv 
tr> the War < >ffice on the ctmmimptioi: of gas and water in thetr 
respective comman«ls during each year ending the 31st March — 
bringing to notice any excessive consumption, iu cause, and the

Arrest and Military Custody. 




When to be 


arrest cannot 
demand a 

warrant or

wardens or 

custody of 

485. An officer under open arrest is forbidden to use his own or 
any other mess premises. He is not to appear in any place of 
amusement or entertainment or at public assemblies, and he i» 
never to appear outside his quarters or tent dressed otherwise 
than m uniform. An officer, when under arrest, will not wear 
sash, sword, belts, or spurs. 

436. It is not desirable, except where it appears that the 
arrest has been made through error, that an officer should be 
released from arrest by the officer who ordered the arrest, without 
the sanction of the highest authority to whom the case may have 
been referred. 

487. An officer may be placed under arrest by a competent 
authority, without previous investigation, when circumstances so 
require ; but a commanding officer on receiving a complaint, or 
coming to the knowledge of circumstances tending to incriminate 
an officer, will uot ordinarily place him under arrest until he haj» 
satisfied himself by inquiry that it will be necessaiy to proceed 
with the case, and report it to superior authority. He wiU 
invariably place under arrest an officer against whom he prefers 
charges. When an officer is placed under arrest, whether after- 
wards released or not, the commanding officer will invariably report 
the case without delay to the general officer commanding the district 
or station. 

488. An officer has no right to demand a court-martial upon 
himself, or, after he has been releaised \>y proper authority, to 
persist in considering himself under the restraint of arrest, or to 
refuse to return to the performance of his duty. An officer who 
conceives himself aggrieved, can complain through the proper 
channel and seek redress under Section 42 of the Army Act. 

439. Paragraphs 434 and 435 will also apply to warrant officers 
and non-commissioned officers, who will, if charged with a serious 
offence, be placed under arrest forthwith, bat, if the offence alleged 
appears not to be serious, it may be investigated and disposed of 
without previous arrest. In cases where doubts exist whether the 
offence alleged has been committed arrest may be delayed, without 
prejudice to any subsequent proceedings. 

440. In the event of a barrack-warden or pensioner barrack- 
serjeant being guilty of an oflence in garrison or barracks, the officer 
commanding is at once to inform the officer in charge of barracks of 
the circumstances of the case, placing the subordinate under arrest 
only when the interests of discipline so require. If the offence 
is serious, the general officer commanding will assemble a court 
of inquiry, with instructions to investigate and record the circum- 
stances of the case, and on receipt of the proceedings of the court of 
inquiry, he will determine whether to arraign the accused before & 
court-martial, or to suspend him from duty, pending a reference to 
the War Office. 

441. Military custody in the case of a private soldier (not under 
sentence) means either the making him a prisoner at large, or 
the putting him in confinement under charge of a guard, piquet^ 
patrol, sentry, or provost-marshal. The accommodation usiially 
available in barracks for the confinement of soldiers under charge 
of a guard is : — 

1. The Friso7ier^ Room attached to a guard-room for the 
temporary detention of prisoners. 

2. The Ouard'Room Cells attached to a guard-room for the 
detention of prisoners who are to be kept apart. 

H7 IQlitary Custod; 

448. The keys of the priaonen' room and ^^turd-room cells are to 
Ije in the char^ of the commander of the gnard. 

448. A pri vate soldier chur^ged with a eerions offence will be placed 
in military cuKtody on the comminion or discovery of the offence. He 
i« not to be confined in the guard-room or cells for offences unaccom- 
panied by drunkeniu'^y violence, or insubordination, unless confine- 
ment is necessarv to ensure his safe custody or for the maintenance 
of discipline, and the investigation of the charge may be held without 
his being confined. A private soldier against whom a charge for an 
offence is |)ending, if a prisoner at laive, will not quit barracks until 
his case has been disposed of. He wul attend panules, but will not 
be detailed for duty. 

444. A soMier in military ctmtody (not under sentence) may be Ttaporw 
ooouuiited, by an order signecl by his commanding officer on Form L. ||^f ^^ 
(m^ paragraph di'}) for tem|x>rarv detention for any period nM poUoTmb- 
exceeding seven days to any prison, |)olice station, lock-up, or lioa* *c. 
other pUce of confinement in which prisoners may legally be 

446. A private soldier who disobeys an onier distinctly given, or SoidiOTt« 
resists the authority of a non-commissioned officer, is to be confined J^ ^^ 
without altercation, and immediately reported to the officer com- oflcen. 
manding his coronany, &c., or to the adjutant. When a non-com- 
mission^ officer nas to confine a soldier he will invariably obtain 
llie assistance of one or more privates to conduct the offender to the 
gnard-room, and will himself avoid in any way coming in contact 
with him. Except in canes of personal violence, or when on detached 
dntica, lauce-conionils and acting bombardiers with less than four 
TfAm* service will not confine private soldiers, but will report the 
offence to the onlerly-serjeant, who will act as the circumstances 

446. A pri%'ate soldier who is dnmk is, if possible, to be confined Fur Anii^ 
alone in the prii«>neni* room <ir a guarrl-room cell. Soldiers on being "~ 
confined will lie searche<l an«l <leprived of knives or other weapons. 
tMdiers oonfine<i for drunkenness may be deprived of their boots, 
except when the weather is cold, aiicf they are likely to suffer in 
oonse<iuence, and are to be viiiite<l and their condition ascertained 
at least every two hours by a noncommissionefl officer of the guard 
and an escort. ShoiiM any symptoms of serious illnesn Iw olisenred. 
a medical officer is forthwith to lie sent for. Soldiers suspected 
of being drunk are nut to lie put throu;;h any drill or tested for the 
puqMMr of ascertaining their condition. (\ire is to be taken that 
a sohlier charged with dninkenneMi in |M*rfectly solier before he is 
brtfught lirfore an officer for investigation u{ tli<* charge. For this 
nar\Mme twenty-four hours sliould usually U* alloweil to elapse 
before tlie investigation. 

447. When a soldier makes a confession of desertion, or of having c« 
committe<l an offence in relation toenlistnient, aiitl theinvesti^tiou ^^

the meaning of Section 44 of the Army Act — nnlees four 
iBsUso^ of drunkennees have been recorded against him within 
llie twelre montha preceding the date of the offence under dispoea], 
or unless he has elected to be tried rather than be awarded fine or 
imprisonment by his commau<ling officer. 

474. To prevent soldiem evading the consequences of drunken- 
Baas by aljsenting themselves until sober, commanding officers, in 
daaling with cases of absence, will decide, from their knowledge of ^ 
tlia individual soldier's character and the attendant circumstances, atn. 
whether the absence is, or is not, to be considered as due to this 
cause. If they decide that it has so arisen their decision is to be 
rseorded at the time in the guard report, and marked in tlie 
aoldier's defaulter sheets with the letter D in the column headed 
^caaes of dnmkenness " ; such entries will not l>e oounte<l for 
daiermining liabilitv to trial by court-martiaL Convictions by 
eoorta-martial for absence without leave, or for desertion, are not 

to be counted as equivalent to actii of drunkenness. 

475. I>runkenness on duty includes drunkenness on parade and ^>"JJ'7»»" 
OQ the line of march, and dniukenness on the line of march includes ^ '* 
dnmkenness during the whole period between the date of departure 

and the date of arrival at destination. 

476. When a private soldier commits the offence of simple Hqipto 
drunkenness in connection with a more serious offence for which jgy ^*]** 
ha is to l»e tried by court-martial, he sliould not l>e charged with omum* 
dmnkeuness liefore the court-martial, unleiw he is liable to trial and vte.^ 
the command tng officer conniders it a case which should lie tried ; 
hut, as a reci»rd of the drunkenness, tlie commanding officer will, 
when a charge of dnmkcnneiw is not preferred in such cases 
before the court-martial, make an entry of the offence, either 
imposing a fine, if the soldier is liable thereto, or making tlu* 
following note in the punishment column : — ** So punishment : 
awaiting trial on another charge." If an entry of the court-martial 
ia aulHM*qaentIy made, the alxive entry will be bracketed with it, 
and will not l>e considennl a sefiarate entry. 

477. In cr^nputiug fines for drunkenness the following rules will ^^^sl^o* 
ha obsrrveil : — iswlor 

i. For the first and second iiuitances during a soldier's service— 
DO fine.

iii. Where a soldier is liable to a fine, and ffNir preceding

the |»reviiius twelve months, 2t. 6c/. will be ad'l«d to the fine laid 
down in Nu1>-|iarafl^rA(>li ii. 

iv. An a<:t of alsience without leave, marker! with the letter I>, 
will, after the two first iiuttanai* of drunkenness during a soldier's 
service, lie re«'kf»tie4l as an insUmce f»f dninkenness for the puqMNie 
of ermiputing the fine for a sulwe«|ueut instance of drunkenness, Imt 
a fine cannot lie awanle<l ff>r alisence without leave.

before their transfer to the reserve will not be taken into aoooant 
in computing the fines for further instances of that offence after 
they rejoin tne colours. 

vii. In colonial corps the fines to be levied will be one-half tiie 
amounts above specified. 

The scale of fines is to be placed iu every ban»d:-TOoni (A. 
F.— B 138). 

478. In dealing with simple drunkenness unconnected with 
another offence, confinement to barracks should only be added to 
a fine when the circumstances are such as to increase its gravity. 
Imprisonment should never be awarded for an instance of dmnkoi- 
ness not triable by court-martial, except when the amoanl of 
unpaid fines for dnmkenness recorded against a soldier ia tOi. 
and upwards, in which case a commanding officer should aubatitale 
imprisonment or some other punishment which it ia in hia power 
to award. 

479. Fines which cannot be recovered from a aoldier'a pay an 
not to 1>e recovered from any other source while he remaina ia 
army ser\'ice. Subject to this regulation, the daily dednotioii on 
account of a fine or fines recorded against a soldier will be limited 
only by the provisions of the Army Act and the *' Financial 
Instructions '' as to the residue that should be paid to him. 


480. Under the Army Act, the jurisdiction of courta-nuutial in 
respect of the trial of different ofifences is unrestricted, and it will 
be observed tliat, except where a particular course ia p r e ec ri bed 
by the regulations, it is not imperative to try any. offence by comi- 
martial. In cases not specially provided for in these regulaAiooBi 
the discretion of officers competent to deal ^'ith any charge ia left 

481. A superior officer to whom a case is referred may deal 
with it as follows : — 

(i.) He may refer the case to a suj^erior officer ; or 
(ii.) He may direct the diHix)sal of the case summarily, or by 

regimental court-martial ; or 
(iii.) If he litis i>ower to convene a district court-martial, he may 

convene a district court-martiiil to try it ; or 
(iv.) If he has ])ower to couvene a genentl court-martial, he may 
convene either a genei*al or district court-martial to try it 

482. The officer r«?f erred to in para;?rapli 4^1 as " a superior officer* 
is not more clearly defined, as hia position and rank depend upon 
the varying conditions of service. It rcKts with general offioera com- 
manding to dctenniue to whom charges shouM be referred which 
cannot be disposed of without reference to higher authority, and 
they may, if tliey think fit, reserve such ciines, either wholly or in 
I)ai*t, for their own consideration. 

483. An olfence punishable with death or penal servitude should 
not be disjKJsed of sunnnarily, or by a regimental or district court- 
martial, except under the orders of an officer who has power to 
convene a general court-martial.

•zpinUioo of a term of impriHonment for an oflfenoe committed or 
dieoorered during iti continuance, regard must be ha<l to the 
proviaions of Section 68 of the Army Act, and Hpeeial care should 
be taken that the limit of two consecutive years of imprisonment, 
including the term already nndergone, shall under no circumstances 
be exceeded. If the prisoner's offence is of so serious a nature as 
to rsquire a more severe punishment than can be inflicted under 
tlus rule, penal servitude, when applicable, should be awarded in 
liea of imprisonment 

000. Courts-martial in framing sentences will observe the roIm la 
following rules :— SSSSH 

L Terms of imprisonment not amounting to six calendar months ■tak' 
will be awarded in da^ 

iL Terms of imprisonment of one year and two years will be 
awarded in years. 

iiL Other terms of imprisonment will be awarded in calendar 
moiiths, or, if required, in calendar months and days. 

Ml. When a soldier has been convicted by court-martial of theft. T>>fi,Oc^ 
cmbeadement, or receiving with guilty knowledge, Section 75 of {^^y 
the Anny Act provides for the restitution of the stolen property in ' 
certain cases. If the prisoner has been sentenced to be placed 
Older stoppages in respect of the property stolen, or unlawfully 
obtained, and any sum of money which may have been found upon 
htm has been appropriated to the above use, the prisoner should be 
placed under stoppsges for the baUnce only of the stoppage awarded 
oy the court In cases where the theft has been coupled with 
desertion a reference is to be made for the decision of the Secretary 
of State for War. 

000. Whenever for special reasons it is considered improper that 9mML »i»* 
a pcrsdn under trial should be sent to the United Kingdom for ^^^"e», 
punishment, tlie attention of the court should be drawn before Jj^JSJJIf^^ 
MOteooe is paiaed to Section 131 (8) of the Army Act Confirming 
oAcers will also observe their powers in this respect Particular 
attention must be paid by general oflioers conimanaing to the direc- 
lions in the note to Section 131 (2) of the Army Act, in the ** Manual 
of Military Law." When a sentence of imprisoament exceeding 
twelve months is passed on a person not included in this note, 
cars is to be taken that before such sentence is inflicted out of the 
United Kinffvlom the necessary order has been made either by 
the court which trietl the prisoner, or by the confirming officer or 
other authority mentioned in the Act 

000. It is the province of a confirming officer, by the exercise of 
his poweri of commutation or mitigation, to regulate the amount of 
pniishnieot awarded by courts-martial, and to ensure that the 
IftdiDgs and sentences are lep^al, and that no sentence is heavier 
thaa the interests of discipline and the merits of the particular 
CMS require. 

004. A confirming officer, when the proceedings rec^uire con- Bmb 
OnoAtion, will record such remarks as may seem to him fit on ^^ 
aar matter connected with the trial, and may direct his observations 
to be promulgated, either with the proceedings, or as he may think 
dflBFaoU. When, however, he finds it necessary to comment on 
the ittadeqnacY of a sentence, his remarks are not to form part of 
tiM minute of confirmation, or to be attached to the prooeedinn, 
but will either be commanicated in a separate mVnnta \o xh*

oompanies, but only during exceptionally severe weather and with 
the sanction of the general officer commanding the district from

leee. Movements of dismounted troops in Great Britain will, riwniisui 
when the distance is too great for a single march, and it is not troop*, 
desirable to carry out the movement by a series of marches, be 
effected by the cheapest railway route. Sea conveyance between 
one part d Great Britain and another should, as a rule, be adopted 
only when obviously more convenient than rail or march. 

leeS. Tlie following are the sea routes by which troops will be St swwrt st 
ordered to travel between Great Britain, Ireland, and the Channel qJ^^^ 
Islands, unless the officer iwuing the route considers that passages bmoia, 
by other lines of Bteamshi|)s will be more convenient for the troops 'f** ^.^. 
and result in a Having of time. In such cases the officer issuing the 1^*^*" 
roQte will use his discretion, having regard to the time of the year 
and the state of the weather : —

1184. When the numbers of men to move exceed 50 in the case of Kocks •• 
railway journeys, or 2() in the case of steamship or combined railway ^jj ?^ 
and steamship journeys, spplication for conveyance must lie made , 
beforehand to the railway and steamship c«>ropsinies concerned, and a 
statement f uniishe<l of the number of officera, men, families, h<»raes, 
cons, &C., to pniceeil. Similar notice should also be given when 
bones are to be m()ve<l by rail, and upei^ial trains, at ordinary 
military' rates should l»e re(|uisitioned when 40 or more 
horses are move<l. (!are sliouhl lie taken that the warning 
given tr» the railway nr steamship company is adequate (a 
week or more in dt*iiirable where the numt»ere to be moved ara 
hu^, or in ca^cs of consi^terable numbera of h(»r«eti or vehicles) 
especially when sea ci»nveysnce is involved ; this is necessary 
because it nuiy mo hap|»^n that movements of other military details

Trucks Imving Hides letting down come next in point of convenience ; 
and, lastly, low-sided trucks. These are to be found on most rail-

flhaftH resting on the floor, the shsJfts |M>iuting inwards. 

1880. The load on a iM>ntoou wagon will usually project several 
feet beyond one end of tue truck it tests on, in which case it will be 
necessary to place an intermediate truck between each pair of 
trucks carrying fH»iit4.i<>n wagons, which Hhould lie loaded back to 
back so that their load may pn»ject over the intermediate trucks.

always had to th«* weight wht«'h the truck i« calculati*d to bear ; on 
these tnioks the heavit^nt loads should be placed nearest the ends

1882. The fliMirs of trucks for horses should be at least li

Transports not Alongside, 

1676. When the transports cannot oome alongside, the horses OooTermM 
most be conveyed in boats or flats, and hoisted on board from ^ ^^'^^ 
them bj slinging, as described above. 

1076. The method of embarking horses in boats or flats will ]J^^*"' ^ 
Tary according to circumstances. If the boats can come alongside bo^"&^ 
a wharf, or can approach close to an open beach, tfa% horses 
can either be lecl on board bj gangways, or be slung in 
the manner described above, sheers or a derrick being erected. 
The head of the derrick must incline inwards when the horse is 
rising, but when he is high enough the head of the derrick or 
sheers must be forced out, to bring the horse over the boat 
When the boats cannot come suflSciently near the shore to enable 
borses to be hoisted, piers or platforms should^ if possible, be 
constructed, along which the borses can be led into the boats. 
The piers should always be provided with stout side railings about 
three feet high, and the floor covered with shingle, straw, or 
something to prevent the homes slipping. 

1677. When embarking in boats, the detachment should be Qggrd^ 
formed up opposite them, and the same rules, so far as ' '^'^ 
practicable, followed as when embarkin|; in vessels alongside a 
wharf. Each man must, in the cavalry, invariably accompany his 
horse, and take with him in the boat the whole of his kit, equip- 
ment, saddlery, Lc, The men should take off arms, belts, and 
sparm. The horses shoukl, if possible, be placed athwart the boat 
aitemately, the head of one horse being on the starboard, and the 
head of the next on the port side. Each man must hold his 
horse until the vessel is reached, either standing up by the borse*s 
bead or sitting on the gunwale, as may be directe<L Sand or 
straw should Im put in the boats to prevent the horses slipping. 

1678. In the alisence of lK>ats and appliances, the following 
method of embarking homes by swimming may be employed, but 
great care must be tiULen in carrying it out : — 

(i.) Ttie homes having been lialte<i at a short distance from, 
and out of sight of, the point of embarkation should be strip|>?d of 
all apftointnients except the bridoon and headstall, which latter 
should be close fitting. 

(il) A home having been le<i to the appointed place, two 
experieU'^Hl hands prepare him for the water. No. 1 holds his 
head. No. 2 places tne slin^ on and secures the straps with 
yam, so as to prevent the sling «>^>ening in the water ; he then 
fastens tlie bre.-ist ro|>e and breeching securely. A ro|ie of crm- 
▼enient length (about ci^ht yanln), with an eye at one end, is next 
passed ruuud the neck and fontenetl rather tightly (without 
pre ssi ng) by an overh.and knot, so as tu prevent its becoming eith**r 
looser or tighter. Tlie bridmin is then taken off, and anothc^r 
rofie attaches! to the lower ring of the headstall, under the chin. 
The use of this n»{>e is to keep the horse's mouth aliovt* the 
water, while he iit controlle<l altogether by the neck rofte. 

(iii.) The home is then led into the water as far as he will 
walk towanis tho lw>at, in the stem of whi<*h should be a rrliabi** 
hand, who nvfivcii the n<*ck rope in his ritfht liand, and initn**- 
diately reevni it through the stem ring of the liust to m-* mw 
additional power in the event of the home plunging ; the bt*adi»tall 
rope he rv<C4M%'f>s in his left luuuL 

(iv.) Wh«?n thf l>oat moves, the home will in most cases {oUow 
uatU he gsU ctT Lis legB into deep water. 11 Vie ^ufe* t^ ^»a% w

269 Horses on Board ShlD. 

especially io the case of some horses which, after a few days at sea, 
get very excited aud endeavour to jump out of their stalls. IiiAtead 
of tying them down more securely, it will generally be found that 
if they are taken out aud allowed to stand they will become quiet 
at once, and begin feeding again. They can be put back in their 
stalls when the excitement has subsided. 

16M. In rough weather, or on the occurrence of " Fire," as ^^JjjV 
many men m can be spared should be directed to stand at the ^

ample supply of disinfectants, including gypsum for absorbing 

1686. Loose boxes are provided for sick horses, and there are Loott boict. 
portable boxes, by means of which horses can be sent on deck 

for an airing. Veterinary slings and straps are also provided for 
sick horses. 

1687. Copies of the scale of rations for horses and mules and 8csl« off 
instructions for stable dtities are hung about the decks. The '*^<'''*- 
iwale of rations is given in the ^ Transport Regulations," but it is 

to be understood tliat the pr(%K>rtions of the articles in the ration 
are to be varied as circumHtances demand. The secret of success 
in long voyagtrs in to give only about 3 Iba of oats to each horse 
<laily, and proportionately increase the quantity of bran, which 
an a rule, should be moistened and mixed with the oats in 
large clean tub^s when these are provide<i as they should be, from 
which each horse's ration shou!*! be issued at each feed, thus 
ensuring the t>ri»{>er cmdition of the ration. The pro|x>rtion 
of oats alluwe«l may \>e increaited on short vojages, and also on 
long voyages when the honi**s are nearing their destination. If, 
however, many h<>rs«M ^et mck at any time on board ship, it is a 
good measure to g<'nen\lly reduce the <Mit ration and give more bran. 
On long voyaj^cM man;;t*nt .ire pn>vi<led for oats. Mangers should Msastra 
be taken otf when not r«*quired, and laid down in front of the 
horse*. When mangers ar^ not provided, the horses must be fed 
with oats from the mm! liag. and with hay by hancL 

1686. Wateriiii; is carried out, by means of tulis and liuckets WateHnf. 
provide<l, fn»m the pumps usually fitted on each stable deck. 
Horses should get at least eight gallons of water per diem, and 
be watere^l at least three times, and more frequently in hot
